How To: Install Modbus Protocol Tester
To install MPT on your computer simply run SetupMSTH.msi and follow the on-screen
instructions. The only option to choose is the installation folder for the application. You
would typically install this in the computer's Program Files folder. The setup program
installs the following components on to your disk:
The Modbus Protocol Tester application.
A Modbus TCP Slave Device Simulator which you can use as a device while learning to use the MPT.
The Users Manual for the Tester.
Subsequent to the installation, the above three components can be accessed using the Windows Start Menu at
Start Menu -> All Programs -> Modbus Protocol Tester
The following are the pre-requisites for being able to install/run MPT:
Operating System: Windows XP SP2 or Windows Vista (any version)
A Network Interface Card (wired or wireless) for using MPT in Modbus TCP mode
.NET Framework 3.0 or higher (can be downloaded in Microsoft Download Center)
|The MPT will not be able to connect to a Modbus TCP device if Firewall is enabled on
your computer. Either disable Firewall or add Modbus port no. 502 under the Exceptions
List of your Firewall.
